Event Concept

The Brussels Art Nouveau & Art Deco (BANAD) Festival is a special event that promotes the Art Nouveau and Art Deco heritage of the Brussels-Capital Region. It usually happens every year in March. Excpetionnelly, this year, the BANAD Festival 2020 couldn't have taken place in the spring, therefore it was partially postponed in Autumn.

What makes this festival so special are guided tours through Art Nouveau and Art Deco buildings that are normally not open for visitors. A unique opportunity to (re) discover these hidden architectural gems!

As part of the Festival, we also offer other activities that spotlight the Art Nouveau and Art Deco heritage and complement the guided tours: walking tours as well as bike and bus tours; concerts; seminars; shows; activities for families; an antique market; activities for disabled people; and activities for schools... 
The event concept is unique in Europe!


The BANAD Festival is organised by Explore.Brussels, a network of associations that organise guided tours: ARAU, Arkadia, Brussels Chatterguides and Pro Velo. 

For this event, Explore.Brussels will work together with many different partners on the topic of Art Nouveau and Art Deco in Brussels, Belgium and abroad, in order to offer a programme of guided tours and events that celebrate these two architectural styles.
